    Not sure here but you may have a virus. Have you tried running a virus scan?

    Get Process Explorer (free) and trace where the process is linked too? Also did you installed anything prior to seeing this process being loaded?

    If you still have the virus. Do as I suggested. Go to the virus and anti malware sub forum here. Broni should be able to help you remove the virus.

    I agree with Cobalt006. Definitely go to our malware forum for removal help. it's very likely a self-replicating virus. (They tend to generate those random names when they replicate to create a new process.) You will need assistance to successfully kill and remove it.
